    Then they key is wrong, use the correct one

    The key has nothing to do with physical/virtual/slic or no slic

    It is just a wrong key, tripple check that you did not ie use windows 2008 ent oem slp key (instead of R2)

    thanks for replying.
    In fact i've completely forgotten
    that i'm using windows 2k8 enterprise server (not R2) but with automatic updates somehow that's has as name server 2008 enterprise R2.!!
    -i use the dell enterprise oem key (not the R2) + vista dell certificates and it's activated
    Cheers for this wonderful forum.;)
